“The PFANJ and NJFMBA view the NJCFC’s endorsement as a non-event. An endorsement made by a group that has been silent while the fire service in New Jersey is diminished and demonized by our governor and have been silent while civilian and firefighter safety is undermined should not be considered newsworthy” stated President William Lavin, NJFMBA and President Dominick Marino, PFANJ who represent the Professional Fire Fighters of New Jersey.
The NJFMBA Health and Safety Committee is being re-organized under the stewardship of firefighter Thomas Wengerter from Linden Local 34.
We would like to thank Paul Kearns from Teaneck for his many years of hard work and dedication to our members and wish him a speedy recovery from his on-duty injuries sustained at a working fire in Hackensack.
Staffing levels and response capabilities are the most critical aspect of the health and safety of our members. All locals are requested to provide current staffing levels per apparatus as well as overall capabilities, including any cutbacks such as brown- outs, company closings or layoffs to the committee so a full report maybe given at the September Convention.
